I am absolutely thrilled with our “oak tree” installation. AnneLouise Burns created a work of art that is pure outsized, overjoyed beauty. Its gorgeous green leaves inscribed with our donors’ names is the perfect metaphor for the vitality and vibrance of Poetry Barn’s community. Intelligent, imaginative, and multi-talented, AnneLouise exceeded all my expectations.
